Hello....once again up and down this land there are cries of "Wednesday already?!"....not only that but its the last one before the next Dr Who episode!! (oh OK, and Christmas!!).
Not been doing much crafting recently as I have been laid up with a wretched bug, hubby had it for 2 weeks and now I have one! So sit back, snot rag in one hand, hot ginger and elderflower in the other and enjoy the tour of desks that the Queen of WOYWW, Julia, has created here
On my desk this week is the first couple of layers in my new journal. I bought it on a recent trip to London at Cass Art (LOVE that shop). Throughout 2012 I amazed myself by completing the entire 365 calendar challenge where you write a small piece of journaling every day. It is run by the amazing Kate Crane and all the deets are here.
I used a small A5 exercise book for this years journal and found the pages had very little room to decorate once the journaling was included, so I bought an A4 sketchbook so I have plenty of room to play in 2013.
Man Bites Dog cards this week....."Crooked priest last blonde suspect"......odd as I watched the Da Vinci Code this week....which has a blonde priest in it!!!
Our craft coven had their secret santa swap this week (the theme was as many gifts you could get for £10-one of the group put a fiver in a card and INDIVIDUALLY wrapped £5 of pennies for her recipient!!!), I will take a photo of the lovely goodies later in the week, but I thought I would share one of the gifts I made for my swap (I bought the other gifts).
Its an empty plastic sweet jar and I have printed off (from Cloth Paper Scissors....my favourite magazine!) 52 art prompts. They contain prompts such as "use only the supplies you have on your desk" or "make something using only whites"....my recipient is a great fabric artist and member of the embroidery guild, so hopefully there are some mojo prompts to challenge her.
Right, I am off to scan some desks (whilst sniffing and coughing!!)
Happy crafting and hope you stay germ free!!
